Criminal Law in the Age of the Administrative State

Vincent Chiao

Studies in Penal Theory and Philosophy

  • Emphasizes that standards of democratic participation and egalitarian substance apply directly to the criminal law, just as they do to other major public institutions
  • Opposes many contemporary criminal law theorists who tend to view the criminal law as built off of everyday moral practices of blame
  • Presents the first comprehensive philosophical treatment of the relationship between criminal justice and social welfare/regulatory policy in contemporary criminal law scholarship
